good morning. i'm lauren lyster in for anne-marie green. this morning federal investigators will try to figure out why the nose gear failed to deploy on a us airways commuter jet. flight 1825 from philadelphia was forced to make an emergency landing monday at george bush airport in houston. the plane with 57 people on board came to a stop on its nose. >> they did a couple of turns around the airport airspace, talked to the faa tower, tried to get visual confirmation that the nose gear was, in fact, inoperable. unfortunately it wasn't working properly. so the airline talked to the pilots and they made the determination to go ahead and do a landing without the benefit of the nose gear. >> passengers exited the plane using emergency slides. one person was taken to the hospital. and fumes in the cockpit forced an american airlines jet from dallas to iowa to make an emergency landing in tulsa. fire trucks and hazmat crews met the plane on the runway monday.
all 67 people aboard made it off safely. it's not clear what caused the odor. the good news for folks in new england is that the latest blast of record-breaking snow should taper off by this evening. the bad news, another round of snow and arcticlike temperatures may be headed their way later this week. boston was hit hard again. piled up in parts of new england yesterday and into the night. snow total records set in 1978 were broken. area transit systems are shut, and schools remain closed. don champion is in boston. don, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, lauren. seeing huge amounts of snow like this has become the new norm in this region in recent weeks. crews have just been pushing all the snow to the side. but as you can see, now even that's becoming a problem. and while most of the snow has tapered off, boston won't be returning to normal any time
soon. buried and frozen. winter has taken a toll on already hard-hit boston. driving around the city in new england remains challenging after another two feet of fresh snow piled up in parts of the region monday. there's mounds of snow and covered cars all over. even this man bundled up to the max had trouble getting around overnight. >> it doesn't bite. >> reporter: there's so much snow, there's no service on all boston area subways, trolleys and commuter rail trains today so crews can clear snow and ice from tracks. this woman was among those stranded monday night when service ended. >> i think we've been down here for, like, two hours. >> reporter: more than 70 inches of snow has fallen here in the past three weeks alone, the most ever recorded here in a 30-day period. now there's potential for even more snow on thursday. south of boston in rockland yesterday, residents got out to
clear mounds of snow off homes and businesses. >> it's easier doing this preventative work rather than having other issues. >> reporter: others will be taking advantage of a break in the weather later today to do the same and avoid scenes like this one where the roof of a local company caved under the weight of ice and snow. now, the governor has declared a state of emergency. to help with the recovery. just to give you an idea of how much snow has fallen here in recent weeks, the normal seasonal snowfall for the city of boston is a little more than 43 inches. we've already nearly doubled that. and this region can see snow well into the month of april. lauren? >> don champion in boston. with snow almost as tall as you are, don, right behind you. thanks. meteorologist eric fisher of our boston station wbz is following the storm and tracking the record-breaking snow totals. >> reporter: we have seen unprecedented snowfall in the boston area. we've broken records for 5 to 40-day totals. and the greatest 40-day total
all-time was broken in just 17 days. unbelievable blitz of snow that's moved through. take a look at some of the totals from this storm. and the biggest totals have been in boston and the cities just off toward the south. the south shore, up to two feet of snow. by the time all is said and done early on in the morning, we could see a couple of those up around 30 inches. unbelievable. we are tracking another storm that's in the pipeline. this is for late thursday and into thursday night. if it develops quick enough and far enough west, we could have another very significant snowstorm. a little farther east, it's still plowable but more manageable. and really there is no where else to get a major snowstorm. so we're hoping this one heads out to sea, but everyone needs to be aware we could have big totals. behind it we've got the cold. so very little melting here in the northeast. and this cold shot heads due south. we'll get below average temperatures to the gulf coast. highs in the 30s on friday for northern alabama and northern georgia. so cold, stormy in the east. for those asking if this pattern is going to end any time soon, unfortunately the answer is no.
it looks like it goes all the way through at least the end of february. i'm meteorologist eric fisher for cbs news. meanwhile tensions between russia and ukraine are simmering this morning. hundreds of russian troops began military exercises in crimea today. that's ahead of tomorrow's scheduled peace talks in belarus. president obama is under increasing pressure to arm the ukrainians in their war with russian-backed separatists. susan mcginnis is in washington with more. susan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, lauren. german chancellor angela merkel briefed president obama on the peace talks yesterday. the president wants to wait to see how these talks turn out before he makes a decision on whether to send weapons into the ukraine government. now, chancellor merkel strongly opposes arming the ukraine's military. after meeting with the president she headed to canada, and there she said military means cannot solve the conflict. the fighting in ukraine has escalated. meanwhile, a previously negotiated truce has fallen apart.
russian-backed separatists right now are outgunning the ukrainians. president obama says he has not yet made up his mind but that sending weapons to bolster ukrainian defenses does remain an option. >> if, in fact, diplomacy fails, what i've asked my team to do is to look at all options. what other means can we put in place to change mr. putin's calculus? and the possibility of lethal defensive weapons is one of those options that's being examined. >> reporter: now, merkel believes that sending more military aid to ukraine would do nothing but cause more blood shed. talks tomorrow will center around setting up some sort of demilitarized zone. lauren? >> susan mcginnis in washington, thanks. alabama has become the 37th state where same-sex marriage is legal after the u.s. supreme court refused to step in monday. but only a handful of counties are allowing the marriages this morning.

destroyed, it's a basic building block for our society. >> reporter: in a state where most residents oppose same-sex marriage, many alabamians cited with justice moore, leaving some license bureaus empty. it's not the first time justice moore has been at the center of a battle between state and federal power. in 2003 he refused to obey a federal court order to remove a monument of the ten commandments from a courthouse. civil rights activists say the gay rights battle is only the latest example of alabama resisting federal power. they compare it to 1963 when then-governor george wallace stood in the doorway at the university of alabama in opposition tofederal orders to integrate alabama schools. moore denies there is a connection between then and now. >> this is not about race. this is not about the recognition that all people are created equal. this is about choice. >> reporter: no one here in alabama knows exactly what is going to happen next in this battle between federal and state power.
it is a case of judicial chaos. the one thing we do know is that at this moment in most of alabama, same-sex couples cannot get a marriage license. chip reid, cbs news, montgomery. the nationwide measles outbreak continues to spread this morning. the cdc says there are now 121 cases reported in 17 states across the country. most can be traced back to disneyland in california. health officials say georgia has its first measles case in three years. the patient is an infant who flew to the u.s. from overseas. coming up on the "morning news," collision course. a suspect leads police on a dangerous chase through the streets of los angeles while carjacking several vehicles. this is the "cbs morning news." ready for your close-up? discover new visionnaire by lancôme. a 2nd generation serum with reinforced lr 2412 complex. in 4 weeks, wrinkles, pores and skin texture are visibly corrected.
